This project evaluated test results of the USAF Wing Commanders Flexibility Program 1st phase only from a system level perspective. This test which is being conducted under two phases was initiated by USAF to enhance the wing commanders acquisition options for meeting mission requirements by expanding the use of local purchase. The first phase of the test covered the time period of October 1991 thru September 1993 and was restricted to consumable items for base support, equipment and vehicles excluding weapons, flight, and space systems. This review looks at the test results from a DoD perspective and takes into account the objectives of the on-going National Performance Review. Significant findings were that local purchases could be received by the air bases participating in the test faster than from the central system but this quicker service was obtained at a greater cost.
